Acadia, ME Hike #3: Otter Cove and Emery Path
We started our third day of hiking with a drive around the coast of Desert Island. We had planned on heading over to the far side of the island but we got a late start and changed plans on the fly. As we were driving we passed a great little cove with a sandy beach and place to pull off, so we did.
After spending some time at Otter Cove we were in the mood for a hike. So we pulled out our trusty app and found a family friendly hike not far from our location. It is known as Emery Path. This was a perfect hike for the family. Emery Path has a 474 ft. ascent, this hike starts at the Nature Center Sieur de Monts and follows a path up the face of the Dorr Mountain. This looks over the Frenchman Bay, Mt. Desert Narrows and The Tarn Pond.
Another successful day of hiking.
